Hey guys...thank you for the wonderful response...and here is a new chapter...hope you enjoy! Those of y'all who are waiting for Shilpa's entry...will have to be a little patient...according to my current planning in my brain...you'll have to at least wait 2-3 chapters...but I promise it will be worth the wait...anyways like always please do comment and tell me how you liked this chapter.
Armaan reached his apartment...the driver helped him carrying the rest of the bags inside...he paid the taxi fare and went inside his flat...for a second he thought he was inside the wrong apartment because as far as he knew since he had moved in 1 year ago he hadn't seen the floors of his apartment...he remembered that even when he got lucky at a party or whatever they would always go to the girls home..and even if they did come to his apart ment the women very early on into the night realized that he wasn't relationship material and they would probably not see him again...and that's exactly what he wanted..he knew how to clean but he didn't bother because that would just raise expectations...he snapped back into reality as he saw Niki walk into the living room and crash onto the couch...she hadn't noticed his presence...by the time he went to the couch she was asleep...he kissed her forehead and covered her up with the quilt that was on the arm chair...he then went inside to his room...he couldn't recognize it either as it was spotless clean...that was his Niki...and this was their relationship...their friendship they understood each other without words...they knew what each other needed when they dealt with shit...like when Niki's mom died..she didn't want people to feel sorry for her she just needed to take a breather and be alone to come to terms with what had happened...and that's what Armaan did for her...he came to her house one day put some clothes in a bag for her and drove her to the airport...Niki at first was confused and then irritated and then so happy when he had given her a ticket to Cochin were she had many memories with her mother...she just kissed him on the check and for the first time during those crappy weeks smiled.
She had done the same for him...when his parents got divorced Armaan was 19...everyone thought he was ok...but something inside of him had broken when he had seen hi parents fighting and when he heard those poisonous words...his parents had wished they had never gotten married..this made him think whether they thought he was a mistake too...nobody comforted him but he had become a very angry person then...that was when he had first discovered street fighting...everyone around him steered away from him because he had becoming very snappy..but Niki was always there...no matter what Armaan told her in his anger she stayed with him...seeing her care for him had made him finally face what was in front of him...he still remembered how he and completely broken down into her arms and had wept like a child...after he calmed down he was afraid that she would make fun of him or tell the entire college what a pussy he was...put till today not another soul knew about that night...their friendship was beyond words...he would be ready to lose everything for Niki...and now another name was added to this list...his daughter.
He came back out of his thoughts and slowly put the cot on his bed...his baby was still sleeping...he quickly ran into the batroom to change...he didn't even think about what he was changing to...he was too worried that if he was next to his baby something would happen to her...he had kept the door of the batroom a little open so that he could hear if something were to go wrong...after his quick change...he slowly took her out of her cot...she looked like an angel...he wished he could just watch her all night but he was tired too...he couldn't leave her in the cot...because that would be too much distance between the two of them...so he slowly lied down and gingerly being careful not to wake her up put her on his chest...he then closed his eyes...he felt complete lying down with his baby...he couldn't believe how he had felt content before she had come into his life. Slowly he too drifted into sleep..the image was perfect...the moonlight shone on to Armaan and his daughter...they looked like the perfect family!
